Power tools take the cool approach

Written by: Mentor Graphics | Published:

AEG Electric Tools is using Flomerics EFD.Lab to optimise airflow and cooling in power tools from industry giant AEG.

Explains Markus W├Ârner, design engineer at AEG: "On a recent project, we used EFD.Lab and were able to get the engine running 20% cooler and also we obtained this improvement much faster than before. Because power tools are getting more compact, we investigate airflow and cooling issues to better understand the effectiveness of the method used. We used to rely on our prior experience or on the results from physical prototype testing. But now we use EFD.Lab to complement information we have gained from experience; therefore, we have a much better idea of how our products will perform, well in advance of the physical testing stage."

AEG's product portfolio includes more than 100 types of tools for the professional market including hammers, percussion and diamond drills, angle and straight grinders, and jig and circular saws.
